The industrywide “Get on Board” campaign is a social media toolkit comprised of images, videos, suggested captions and links to help amplify the voice of the industry on social media throughout the summer.

The groups are asking industry members and stakeholders to use the hashtag #TheWaterIsOpen, and tag @discoverboating and @takemefishing on all posts.
